Modern Warfare 3 – No Character Customization, Enhanced Theater Mode

Posted on October 12, 2011 AT 06:06am

THE BUZZ: Robert Bowling, Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward, has revealed a couple more details regarding character customization in Modern Warfare 3, and the game’s theater mode.

Firstly he revealed that Modern Warfare 3 will focus on gameplay customization more than charcter customization like in Black Ops:

”We don’t do any character customization, all our customization is focused on gameplay, loadouts, and weapon camos.”

He also mentioned that the theater mode, introduced in Black Ops, will be getting some enhancements in Modern Warfare 3:

”No dolphin diving, but there is theater mode in MW3 with enhancements (mostly how it runs so that it doesn’t impact framerate).”

EGM’s TAKE: Gameplay is a lot more important than character customization so this isn’t a major blow to fans.

Would you like to see the return of character customization? Leave your thoughts below.
